Can I Actually Change?


Start with a “get to know you” conversation. Ask everyone to introduce themselves, share how they got connected at Valley Creek, and one fun fact about themselves.


1. Read Romans 7:15, 18-20, 22-24. What ruts (patterns or habits) are so deeply formed in you that you naturally and effortlessly go the world's way? How are you acknowledging it and allowing Jesus to train you as a disciple (1 Timothy 4:7-8)?

2. We can become the person God created us to be when we have a vision (a preferred future for our life; see Matthew 4:19), intent (earnest, eager, devoted, and committed to see a new reality), and means (next steps).

  • Who do you want to become (your vision)?
  • What’s your intent?
  • What next steps (means) is God inviting you to take as you train to live a different way?

3. Read Philippians 2:12-13 and Matthew 5:6. Humility and hunger lead to change. What are you hungry and thirsty for? What vision has captivated your life? What are you pursuing?


Pray together: Jesus, help me have the intent to change.
